Neck Stretches | At Home Stretching Series
Hey folks, Andrew here from EarthFIT wanted to bring you your neck stretches for at home. Amazing people who have migraines, neck pain in general, forward head lean things like that. This is part of the process for kind of rehabbing, but also helping yourself out a little bit.
What we’re gonna do is we’re actually gonna take one hand, place it underneath our butt and sit on it. The opposite hand goes up slowly, pulls our head down the side, nose forward, nose forward, head down to the side, to the same side here. This is the scalene were stretching, hold for 30 seconds. Deep breaths, and go a little bit more, but don’t try to crank your head downward, right? A light stretch is sufficient and we’ll get you good results. Then you switch sides both for 30 seconds. Do that morning and evening. And throughout your day, especially you computer workers and you drivers who had your head down and shoulders up and whatnot.
Great for you to do your stretch that way. Obviously you want to hit the other side, the levator scapula, right? That’s going to be like this same exact positioning.
You’re going to turn your head to the opposite armpit or opposite shoulder, and then bring your head downward like this. You’re gonna feel kinda more of that back side of your neck. Amazing. If probably relieving right away when you do it, it’s an amazing stretch. Do that again. 30 seconds. Hold each side twice a day. And throughout your day, as you feel your neck pain, and then the bonus is neck rotation. I’m going to fast go, go nice and slow for neck rotations. And I’ll give you guys a lot more neck stretches along with shoulders and chest and lats and QL at the thoracic and lumbar and hips and knees and feet and ankles and calves. So much more to learn. I’ll see you guys on the other side.
